Latest Update Cano (hamstring) returned to Mariners lineup Mon. Mon Jul, 21, 04:43 PM
Has one of the best left-handed swings in the game, with tremendously quick hands. Eats fastballs alive and mauls right-handed pitching. Boasts a good arm and sound glove.
Flaws: : Doesn't walk enough for an elite batter. Doesn't run very well on the base-paths. Also, he isn't really able to carry teams and needs help around him to be most effective.
The injury was deemed minor to begin with, so public overreaction was, as expected, senseless. Sure, he's not hitting for the same power, but he's still one of the best second baseman out there. Continue to move forward with Cano, business as usual.Analyst: Howard Bender
It seemed odd that a player like Cano was getting the day off, but now we know why. Given the fact that he is available to pinch-hit, it seems as though this is likely a minor issue. Expect him back in the lineup on Monday.Analyst: David Kerr
This appears to be a day of rest for Cano. The Mariners are facing a lefty in Tyler Skaggs on Sunday and decided to give Cano a breather before they begin a seven game home stand on Monday. Willie Bloomquist is starting at second base and batting second for Seattle.Analyst: David Kerr
The average has been there for most all of the season and now the home runs are finally beginning to pile up, to some degree, as Saturday's three-run shot was his seventh of the season and third over his last 13 games, which is promising for fantasy owners who invested a late first-round pick in the former Yankee keystone player.Analyst: Michael Pichan
